Oldham Metropolitan Borough Council
Referral Gateway
Summary:
NHS Oldham wishes to invite Expressions of Interest (EOI) to provide a peer-review and referral triage service, primarily for Oldham GP outpatient referrals. Prospective providers must demonstrate the ability to deliver the service with suitably experienced and knowledgeable healthcare professionals to effectively assess referrals in a range of specialties and record outcomes. The patient communication administrative functions (i.e. appointment letters/call handlers) will be provided by an established third party; the Appointment Centre.
Referrals will be assessed for completeness of an agreed minimum data set, implied standards of information specific to the reason for referral and NHS Oldham’s Effective Use of Resources policy. The preferred provider will demonstrate an understanding of local healthcare services and evidence based practice, assimilating this knowledge to triage referrals in the most appropriate manner. The provider will enable referring GPs to discuss referral assessment outcomes with the clinician that performed the assessment.
***The PQQ will be available on the Chest on 18th May 2012***
